Jessica Davis: I have a family who are amazing. My friends are amazing. I have a boyfriend who cares about me and treats me really well.
Bryce Walker: I'm happy for you, truly. I only want the best for you, Jess.
Jessica Davis: Yeah... but it's weird, because no matter what I do... you're still on top of me, and I still can't breathe.
Jessica Davis: I know my speech was... Well, people had different opinions on my speech. And yeah, the administration did talk to me about it, but the thing they were mostly upset about was the profanity. I was like, "Seriously? That's what you heard?" Fuck that! I'm pissed off. I'm gonna be pissed off until things actually change. Until the predators and the rapists are gone for good. Never again.
Jessica Davis: You know what? Fuck you, Monty! Fuck all of you jocks. I was raped by the king of the school and I stayed silent. I protected the jock who raped me because... I don't know. Because I thought it would hurt more to speak up... because I thought it would ruin my reputation. But I am no longer staying quiet. No more! So, here's my promise. If you elect me, I will take down the jocks at this school. Put an end to their bullshit. I will not tolerate the ones who protect them, and I will demand that their victims no longer remain silent. Because their silence destroys us all.
Jessica Davis: Your Honor, when we leave this courtroom, Bryce Walker gets to leave convinced that he chose the wrong girl to have sex with. I get to leave constantly looking over my shoulder for monsters dressed up as the popular kid, constantly on edge and assuming the worst in every boy. The sentence you decide today can tell Bryce Walker what he did was wrong. It can say that to every boy, every man who behaves like he does. And it can say to victims like me that our story matters.
Jessica Davis: I don't blame Hannah for anything. That's how it is for girls. People judge you by the way you look, the things they hear about you. They put a label on you. I just feel like boys get to define themselves. They get to choose their identity, and they can hide behind it. Well, most boys. I think some know what it's like to be afraid... to feel like the world gave you a certain label that you have to live with for the rest of your life. But most boys don't know what it's like. Every single girl does. Even boys who mean well want to tell you who you are. So we just start expecting them to put a label on us. And we just do it to ourselves.
Zach Dempsey: We're not allowed to talk about suicide. Or you. Or Hannah.
Jessica Davis: Says who?
Zach Dempsey: Says the school. They made a rule the day after you... after that day. And if you talk about it on campus, you get suspended.
Alex Standall: That's so fucked up.
Zach Dempsey: Yeah.
Alex Standall: This trial has me freaked out. What have people been saying about us? What do they know?
Jessica Davis: We're gonna find out.
Alex Standall: Jess...
Jessica Davis: Look, whatever happens, we're gonna stick to the plan. I don't remember what happened to me, just like you don't remember what happened to you. Right?
Alex Standall: Right.
Justin Foley: Tell me what you want me to do, and I'll do it. I'll fucking go to the school. I'll talk to the cops. I'll kill Bryce. If you want, I'll kill him with my bare hands and pay the price. Just please tell me what you want.
Jessica Davis: What I want... is never to see you again in my life.
